Tough stunt to pull off. I think they filmed it running forward and reversed it for the commercial, so the trucks are actually driving forward. Even if that's true it's still a remarkable feat.

They actually drove backwards and he actually did the splits. They had a harness on him that they digitally removed afterwards. His feet are just sitting on top of a block attached to the rear view mirrors.
